If you are shopping for an affordable new sedan, two models you will likely compare are the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer and the 2017 Nissan Sentra. We are going to do some of the work for you and show you why the Lancer is the superior choice. And, when you are ready to put the Lancer to the test yourself, come visit us at Pantili Mitsubishi.
The Lancer comes with one of the best warranties in the country. It offers buyers a 60-month/60,000-mile Whole Vehicle Warranty, while the Sentra’s warranty only lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles. In addition, Lancer owners get the benefit of a 120-month/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty. The Sentra’s protection ends after 60 months or 60,000 miles.
Modern drivers want modern features. With the Lancer, you will get a lot more standard features, even on the base trim, than you will with the Sentra. The Lancer comes standard with automatic climate control, heated exterior mirrors, a FUSE hand-free Link System, a rearview camera, and parking assistance. These features are not even available as options on the base Sentra.
With the Lancer, you will also get a car that is fun to drive. Its standard 2.0-liter MIVEC engine delivers 148 horsepower, while the Sentra’s engine only gives you 130 horsepower.
